Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB) is the largest healthcare organisation in Wales and one of the most complex in the NHS with over 16,000 staff serving a population of 670,000. Responsible for improving the health of the population through the provision of a full range of public health, primary, community and mental health services alongside acute, specialist and tertiary services. We are rooted in the communities we serve and are driven by our vision to improve the health of our population by developing integrated healthcare services delivered thorough our highly talented and committed workforce. We have experienced challenges in achieving this to date and now require an outstanding new Chief Executive to lead us on a journey of sustainable improvement, cultural change and strategic development.

We are realistic in respect of the challenges we face, but highly ambitious for our staff and our communities, and believe that under the leadership of our new Chief Executive we will thrive as an organisation. We are seeking a visionary and inspiring individual who has the ability to lead wide ranging and sustained improvements to our services and deliver measurable cultural change. You will be committed to collaboration and partnership working, demonstrating outstanding people and engagement skills to forge new relationships with public and partner organisations.

In joining us as Chief Executive, you will have the opportunity to make a career defining impact in one of the most important leadership roles across Wales and within the NHS, developing our staff to their fullest potential and improving the health and wellbeing of our communities.

At this stage, your ability to bring the required leadership skills and track record of delivery through your teams is more important than the sectors you have worked in, and we welcome interest from a diverse range of candidates.

The closing date for this vacancy may be subject to change.
